We’re thrilled to be announced as winner of the North East Charity of the Year Award 2018 at the North East Charity Awards ceremony last night.
Our Chief Executive, James Ellam, had the honour of accepting the award, he said:
To create something as special as St Oswald’s takes a vast and very supportive community, we have a huge number of volunteers, fantastic staff and supporters who allow us to keep going and deliver this fantastic care to people.
At the awards ceremony, more than 400 people gathered to celebrate the North East voluntary sector. The judges of the awards commented:
They really make a community for patients, work in collaboration with nine other independent hospices and have the attitude of ‘what can we do?’ regardless of the situation.
We’d like to thank all of our supporters, it’s a community effort and we couldn’t do it without you!
Congratulations to all of the winners and highly commended.
